Retirement Career and Employment

New Career

Many Silver Collar workers have discovered that the Freedom 55 concept does not work!

Silver Collar Workers

Silver Collar Workers are over 50 and many  know that retirement isn’t for them, for a variety of reasons.  But they also know they would like to do something different, something meaningful.  But what?

If you’ve been out of the work search market for a while, no doubt you are feeling, intimidated, uncertain, alone and even desperate.  You’ve discovered that the world of work is very different from what it was a decade ago and  that you are a victim of stereotyped views of older workers (sometimes called ageism).  Yet you know that you have something valuable to offer.

Finding meaningful work when you are over 50 takes a whole new approach and a whole new way of thinking.  As your career counsellors, we will guide you through this new approach.
